this weekend we still had 80s across the interior valleys. we're also tracking areas of showers and thunderstorms. it's more of a heads up right now. if you're traveling to lake tahoe, you may have a spotty shower. most of the activity is dieing down. we could get some of the cloud top blow off that could make it to the east bay tomorrow night. let's look at the temperatures as we talked about from 80s yesterday. we had the fog here on our weather underground, still at 10:00 this morning. eventually you can see it, we had blue sky in here by 3:30. we'll get you outside the sky camera network right now. but begin even with all of that sunshine you're not in the 70s for the south bay. and with that cold westerly wind. san francisco is still checking in with 58 degrees this morning.
if you want a clearer start, it will not be with us. you need to get prepared for another foggy round of weather here in the area. temperatures will primarily start in the 50s, and we'll note in san francisco the possibility here of patchy drizzle to start. i want to talk about time on the current weather pattern. last week it was all about the potential of maybe getting weather in here. unfortunately the way it looks is that three different systems as we head throughout this week will be passing just to the north. it is the best we can do to get the foggy wind here. no big rainfall totals expected across the next few days. by 7:00 in the morning, you can see close to san francisco, down in the peninsula, there is drizzle in the morning hours.
it will at least help some of the vegetation. by 11:00 in the morning, we will gradually clear out. the bay, and the golden gate bridge. it's one of those days if you're heading to the coast we expect fog through the evening hours. san jose, 72 degrees. only 58 degrees. san francisco saying in the 60s. best bet on sunshine tri-valley. it should be the overall warmest location with pleasanton at 72. no major rainfall expected across the area. the only only potential here is a slight thunderstorm risk in the hills about 1,000 feet if is only a 10% chance right now. >> thanks, still ahead at 5:00
we desperately need rain. and some people believe we're overdue for what we call a megastorm. they held a news conference outlining -- they should been hit with a 100 year storm event by now. the last one was in the 1860s. >> what was that storm like? >> as you can see it is a little damp, it contained the equivalent of about 16 mississippi rivers. it bankrupted the state. it destroyed about a quarter of the state's economy. >> serious numbers there. the concern today is that there are $46 billion in bay area assets in that 1861 flood plane. there is a lot of planning by
all levels of government to address this risk. >> the humpback whale is making a come back. they're talking about putting most of the population off of the list. they will classify them into 14 distinct populations. scientists say the populations are largely independent, managing them separately. restoration efforts have led to an increase in hump backs in the last few years. >> the company, kraft, is changing their recipe for maco maceroni and cheese. they plan to make changes later
william shatner's ban to get water in california. >> endangered in more ways than one. leo p sea lion has tripled in size since last fall. experts were not sure that the pup would even survive the trip from washington state to california. now after being sedated, measured and fitting with a tracking device he is back once again. he is returning to washington. and when leo saw the beach, he made a run for it. 250 pounds is not really a run for it but he did move fast and we wish him all the best in the wild where he belongs. >> all right, jeff outside? >> beautiful start to today. we would like to see it rainier throughout the week. not going to happen.
